HON. WM. SHARPE TO GOV. CASWELL.

The history of mankind does not produce a greater instance of discipline and cool bravery than that displayed by Gen.

The Evening Post enclosed will afford you some entertainment in a leisure hour.

I have the honor to be, with great respect, Sir,
Your Mo. ob. Serv't,
